Has anyone ever donated plasma while pregnant? If so did you have any complications?

You won't be able to donate while pregnant.

But what if you already have? I know the plasma center does not allow it, but if you are not showing yet and have been giving plasma will it hurt the baby?

Yes, you could have complications.

I don't know about that. Everything is probably fine, but I wouldn't continue to do it. GL!

Well.. I would assume there are safety issues for both you and the baby.. Hence the reason they don't allow it..?! :roll:

its dangerous for you and the baby. you both need it and since my boyfriend donates his immune system is weak and gets very sick all the time.. you baby lives off of you so I suggest you stop. just saying your not suppose to thats why they dont let you. so why do something your not suppose to do specially with a LO INSIDE YOU.

Not only that but hcg will be present in the plasma you donate. It might f**k up the recipient. Quit being so selfish

Your blood volume increases in pregnancy because you need it. I wouldn't be selling my blood at a time when I need it the most. Also plasma plays a key role in the way the placenta works.

They don't make the rules they have for no reason at all. Obviously if you are not allowed to donate while pregnant there is a valid reason.



Hopefully you are not actually considering lieing to them and putting you and your baby in danger.

Assumtions make you look stupid. Clearly, I didnt know I was pregnant, and I dont give plasma for the weak ass money. I do it because my newphew needs plasma on a weekly basis.

I think you are fine, though I don't think they will be able to use your plasma because of the HcG present. Sadly it will go to waste.

Um, that's the most stupid reason ever. "I don't have money to pay for my child so I will donate plasma which is risky to the fetus." Oh yeah, GREAT reasoning!
